I think that you will be out of luck on what you are trying to do..Dell being the proprietary thing that it is uses a mobo and cpu combine pack meaning that it is specifically built around that configuration.. In order to up grade would require the installation of a whole new board and chip combination.

while there are some boarde that can take a slight difference in a chip what you are asking is a giant leap.
